The 8th annual Bismarck-Mandan Young Professionals Network (YPN) Chill-N-Bowl was held at Midway Lanes in February. Twenty-two teams competed in the chili cook-off and bowling tournament.
The Chill-N-Bowl was first organized in 2009 and has continuously grown each year. Since then, the event has developed into the largest fundraiser for the YPN. Teams participated in fundraisers such as a 50/50 raffle and silent auction throughout the event. On March 7, the YPN presented a check to the American Red Cross, non-profit partner of the YPN, for more than $1,800.
